    Hi cindychunk, welcome to Linux Forums.
    First of all, that link to freshrpms is bad, it's no good. You could add another repo if you like.
    Secondly, I believe that you paid for RHEL, right? You should be able to get support from Redhat. I think that If you modify RHEL too much, Redhat may not offer you support anymore because you have altered the product.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
